In a statement, Disney CEO Bob Chapek declared, “Frozen 2 has captivated audiences around the world through its powerful themes of perseverance and the importance of family, messages that are incredibly relevant during this time, and we are pleased to be able to share this heartwarming story early with our Disney+ subscribers to enjoy at home on any device.”
Disney Plus disclosed the good news from its official Twitter account amid a growing list of shows facing suspension or cancellation. Netflix recently halted the production of its scripted shows and films, and HBO’s 'Euphoria' has also pressed pause on the filming of their second season. Several other movie projects such as Mission Impossible 7 recently called off their production schedule in the wake of the Covid-19 health scare in Italy.

As for the TV shows that shot in front of a live audience in the past, they’ve either gone on hiatus or continued shooting under extreme precautions without the audience. With official guidance forbidding gatherings of large groups of people in most places, most projects in the entertainment and fashion industry saw on daylight despite months and months of planning.
